Unicorn Cay

Governor’s Harbour, Bahamas - Eleuthera and Harbour Island, Caribbean
Sleeps 8:  $929 - $929 / night
  • 4 Bedrooms

  • 5 Bathrooms

  • Pool

Discover a Bahamas hideaway that will make you believe in magic at Unicorn Cay. This one-of-a-kind vacation rental was built by Rosita Forbes, a famed writer and explorer who traveled widely throughout north Africa and the Middle East before settling on Eleuthera Island. The four-bedroom house was inspired by a French chateau and commands 12 acres of private grounds and nearly 500 feet of pink-sand beach. And today, it welcomes not just adventurers, but those looking to unwind and reconnect with friends and family.

Take in the views from the shaded verandas and patios lining the house, or relax in the sunny central courtyard on a lounger or sun bed by the pool. There’s a barbecue where you can prep local specialties and an al-fresco dining table where you can enjoy them. Kayaks, stand-up paddleboards and snorkel equipment are provided for your use, and the villa has a golf cart you can take to the Unicorn Cay beach. In the evening, entertain inside around the hand-crafted walnut bar, spend a quiet moment in the library or keep up with favorite shows or games on the satellite TV.

A gated entrance flanked by turrets sets the stately, European-inspired tone for this grande dame of Caribbean estates. It was recently restored to bring out the original features, from Abaco pine floors and woodwork to native stone, and add a touch of modern luxury—think gourmet appliances in the fully equipped kitchen. In the living and dining areas, built-in bookcases, coffered ceilings and a broad fireplace continue the feel of inviting elegance.

Each of the property’s four bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom and opens onto the courtyard. There is one master suite with a king bed, two bedrooms with queen beds and one bedroom with two twin beds. The beautiful traditional interiors, which include details like four-poster beds and ornate chests, give the feeling of staying in someone’s country estate on holiday.

The villa’s charms extend to its 470 feet of pink-sand beach, perfect for a honeymoon-style stroll or snorkeling on the nearby reefs. Its location near Governor’s Harbour is close to several fine restaurants, as well as the Edwin’s Turtle Lake Marine Preserve. For an easy day trip, drive to the ferry docks and ride over to Harbour Island for a few hours of exploration.
